Hi, my name is Tracy Brown, I'm a beauty expert. I have about 30 years of experience in skin care and makeup and as a cosmetics trainer and I have a great blog where you can view all my experience, my tips and advice Today we're at the beautiful My'Amour Salon & Spa in San Leandro. Our topic today is how to darken lipstick. The best way to do that of course is to have two lipsticks, one lighter and one darker and to apply your lighter one first and then apply a little bit of your darker and mix it on the lip. I'm going to show you that on Tamara. So I've applied The CoverGirl Queen Collection in Coquette, which is a lighter pink on Tamara, I'm going to go and mix in with a deeper color, which this ones called Enamor, I'm going to apply this from the outside of the lip line to darken this lipstick color. And this is nice, we still have a pink tone to the lipstick, but not quite as light and bright as it was previously. Of course the more you add a deeper color the more you darken your lipstick and that's a preference. So remember when you want to darken your lipstick start with the lightest color, then apply your darker color, that, that way you can actually control how dark your lipstick gets.
